Mirage will become your friend, once you pay your dues.
Mostly because you can see it. It will flow with the wind and boil when the wind stops. Boiling is when mirage is always an enemy.
Next time you go out set the rifle solid with the reticle centered on the bull. Get off of the rifle but still look through the scope. Watch the bull dance around the reticle. Pretty interesting.
As the wind varies watch what the mirage does. Some one other than me should discuss the refraction as my shots always go opposite to where I desire if mirage is flowing different than when I take that first shot. It's enough to make a fella say some bad words. Also one reason I quit local bench rest competition. After one bad shot I could never get my act together.
I've seen mirage flow horizontal left, horizontal right, every thing in between and boil all in the time allotted for a 5 shot group and never settle to where it was when the first shot was made.
Regardless of scope power, mirage is still there, BTW...
